Even though I’m slowly but surely running out of time and things are not running smoothly, I’m happy I could start selling and shipping! WEEK THE FIRST SALE Everything became a bit overwhelming. Slowly but surely I lost control. I had two options: Pause the project until my military training in the German army is over (and don’t reach my goal) OR Ask for help.
